Notes: In late 1954, Gretsch introduced the guitar that would become its most iconic creation: the Chet Atkins Hollow Body. Designed in collaboration with Nashville's most famous instrumentalist, the 6120 drew upon Chet's long recording and performing experience to create an exceptionally versatile, highly playable electric instrument.

The fully hollow body, slimmer in depth than conventional archtops, lent a more comfortable feel. A handily placed master volume control facilitated dynamics during play. Later renamed the Nashville Model, the 6120 became one of the first production guitars to be factory equipped with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece as standard equipment.

This rare reissue (one source claims it to have been limited to just 46 examples in its single year of production) is without doubt the most visually spectacular edition of this classic model ever released. Crafted of intensely figured curly Koa, this eyecatching guitar features the rare and extravagantly figured tonewood found only within the Hawaiian Islands. Combines many of the most desirable features of this favorite model, the guitar is fitted with Twin Filter-Tron pickups, traditional trestle bracing, toned binding, master volume and tone controls. and an adjustable rocker bridge, the classic complement to the Gretsch logo Bigsby tailpiece.

This example is in immaculate 100% original condition, without apparent playwear or checking. The guitar has a fine, versatile voice covering the gamut from bebop to rockabilly, with action smooth and low over a comfy, gentle C profile neck with a light V contour, and a fresh high precision setup.
